Overview: What are the government’s intended changes in terms of employees and employers?

We can help you prepare for the changes brought about by the Labour Code amendment, the government’s consolidation package, the Whistleblower Protection Act, and the Employment Act amendment. Below, you will find an overview of the most significant topics of the coming months.

What to expect?


The amendment to the Labour Code will bring a number of major changes that will affect all employers, regardless of the sector or area in which they operate. These changes encompass rules regarding working from home, agreements on work outside the employment relationship, informing employees and delivering documents.


A key plan for economic stabilisation and reduction of the public deficit has been introduced, known as the government’s “Czech Republic in Shape” consolidation package. Among the elements discussed is a change in the tax regime for employee benefits. What are the introduced changes to employee benefits and how to prepare for them? Our legal, tax and HR experts have prepared comprehensive advice on getting ready for the new taxation of employee benefits.


The new law, effective from August 2023, emphasises transparency and ethics in the corporate world. Employers with over 50 employees along with other entities must establish an internal whistleblowing system to report violations. Reports can include criminal offences, misdemeanours, and breaches of EU law. The law also sets out penalties for non-compliance and specific rules for obliged entities.


The forthcoming amendment should particularly affect employment agencies and employment intermediation, not only by modifying the obligations of employment agencies, but also the protection of agency workers.
